Obituary for Shirley J. Wade

Deaconess Shirley Jean Wade was born September 12, 1939, to the late Bernice and Ruben Green Sr. Shirley joined Second Antioch Baptist church at an early age. She loved the Lord and enjoyed serving on different auxiliaries, some of which included the J. W. Henderson Choir, Usher Board, and Pastoral Aid. She particularly loved the James River Sunday School Convention Choir. She was also a long-time member of the Eastern Star Organization, rising to the rank of Worthy Matron.
Shirley’s passion of caring for others started early in her working life. She used that passion to cultivate a successful career as a Certified Nursing Assistant. She was often sought out by local families to care for their loved ones. She was always described as a caring and giving nurse.
All that knew Shirley knew that she loved her family dearly. She was always available for anyone that needed her, supporting them in sharing her wisdom. She gave her time and love without asking for anything in return.
Deaconess Shirley Jean Wade departed this life December 25, 2014 after a strong and courageous battle with cancer.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Deacon Leroy Wade; and siblings Ruben Green Jr., Lucy Mills, and Evangelist Dorothy Redding.
Shirley leaves to cherish her memory a devoted daughter, Belinda Taylor (Shirley Jr.), and three sons: Mark Williamson, Leonard Wade (Sheryl), and James Williamson (Elizabeth). She also leaves seven grandchildren:  Cordell Green Sr. (Dasha), Salanda Henderson Jr., Morgan Wade, Katrina Velasquez (Pablo); Theresa Taylor; Jhene Williamson and Jhade Williamson; four great-grandchildren: Alexia Taylor; Cordell Green Jr., Cameron Green and Jacob Velasquez; four sisters: Mary Benjamin, Elizabeth Chappell, Helen Booker and Lula Henderson (Fred Sr.); one brother: Willie Green Sr. (Gertrude), two sisters-in-law: Lille Mae Taylor (Edward) and Blanche Wade, and two brothers-in-law: Little Thomas Wade (Florence) and Milton (Bill) Richardson.
